Canvas Weddings provides unique and artistic wedding planning services in New York's Hudson Valley and beyond. We like to think that our work on weddings is similar to an artist’s work with his paintings. In order to create his masterpiece, he must understand and appreciate his root element ---the canvas. That’s how we approach our wedding work --- we first and foremost get to know, understand and appreciate the couple --- our root element --- whose special day we are helping to create. Everything else flows from that.
We have found that the more couples treat their weddings as expressions of their unique identity as a pair, the more simple, stress-free and joyful the planning process becomes. Modern wedding planning can be a taxing and exhausting process --- in fact, some say that the average wedding consists of nearly 5,000 details! As such, we believe it is our duty to help each couple determine their unique point of view, which will, in turn, narrow the focus of the event and simplify the decision-making process.
As your coordinator, clients can rely on us for prompt communication, an organized approach, a trusted confidante and a friend whose main goal is to help them create an artful, expressive day that they can enjoy and look back on with fondness.
Founder Corinne Van Arsdale created Canvas Weddings with the notion that every couple (and every wedding) is different, which is why why we offer a wide variety of services to help you create your wedding masterpiece. We offer packages ranging from wedding weekend coordination to full-service start-to-finish planning, as well as a la carte services and hourly rate consultation sessions. Canvas Weddings also provides coordination services for surprise engagements, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, engagement parties, and more. Wedding Coordination packages start at $2,500.00.

The best decision we made was using Corinne (other than getting married to each other)
I would have been completely LOST without Corinne. There is absolutely no way my wedding could have been pulled off without her. There were so many moving pieces to a camp wedding from the multiple vendors, activities, decor, so many tiny nuances that Corinne juggled expertly. She made it so that my family and I could head into the wedding day stress free and enjoy the whole weekend without worrying about a thing. Corinne totally understood what was important to us, what we were looking for style wise, and had amazing ideas. I could not recommend Corinne more!!Sent on 01/07/2019

Professsional Oraganized and Awesome!
Corinne planned our event at a sleep away camp in the Berkshires that required bringing in everything from the flowers to the cutlery to the tables and lighting. She had the vision to transform the space into a magical and beautiful venue. Responsive at every turn and I can not recommend more highly . No words to express the amount of gratitude.Sent on 01/31/2019

The very BEST!
Corinne is a real-life superhero.Sent on 04/04/2019
I had this slightly outrageous idea to use candles as my decor in lieu of flowers, 774 white and ivory pillar candles to be exact. Together we planned out the long reception tables but she really took creative control over placing them throughout the rest of the cocktail and reception spaces so that I could leave to get ready. Corinne couldn't have been more diligent about executing my vision to absolute perfection. When I saw the space, I was in awe of how stunning a job she did.
But that's not all. It was down pouring the morning of our wedding and my husband really wanted to have our ceremony outdoors in the garden of our venue. We had made the decision to set-up inside but if it looked like the rain was letting up in time, Corinne promised him that she would move it to the garden. Finally, at around 4:00 in the afternoon the rain stopped and the sun broke. Within minutes Corinne and her team flipped the ceremony set-up.
Corinne knew exactly what we wanted for our wedding day and flawlessly delivered. When we think about what it was that made our wedding day so perfectly magical, we can't help but think of how Corinne was the one behind it all. Corinne, from the bottom of our hearts we can't say thank you enough! Xx
